Reuters staff raise alarms over partnership with Russian-owned wire service

Reuters has not ended its relationship with Tass despite internal concerns.

Max Tani, Mar 20, 2022

The Brookings Institution, a left-leaning think tank, reported that Tass has parroted Russia government claims that Ukrainians killed civilians in the Donbas region and dumped their bodies into mass graves, a claim that news organizations and experts say is false. Tass also reported that Ukranian forces had fired on Russians during a cease-fire, and that neo-Nazis had used Ukranian civilians as "human shields," a claim which the New York Times said "helped create an alternate reality."


For decades, Reuters, AP, NYT were reporting about the Middle East relying on "sources" such as O or later on, Hamas about so-called "civilians", provided hoax "numbers", (besides the other crime, of omitting the Arab "Palestinian" constant use of its civilians to make sure many die).
